Medium Pipe Dream

The Pipe Dream is a foraging toy of Kirsty’s own making. They are made in 3 different sizes to suit a range of parrots and the medium is best suited to Cockatiels to Indian Ringnecks.
Your parrot just needs to lift the lid out of the way and reach their beak inside the pipe to retrieve their reward. You can mix seed/pellets with bird safe foraging substrate inside the toy or use larger items like nuts, beads or chunks of vegetables wrapped in paper. When first introducing this toy, you can use a piece of sticky tape to hold one lid open for your bird to learn where to find the food. After they have used it this way for a few days, you can remove the tape and let them pick the lid up themselves.
The stainless steel chain running through the toy, helps to hold the lids a little more securely to add some difficulty. Pacifiers adorn the ends of the chain.
The Pipe dream is made with bird safe, tough pvc and all hardware is stainless steel. There are acrylic beads and cardboard birdy bagels for your bird to play with too. At the top, there is an ‘o’ ring to attach your own hanging link to. The Medium Pipe Dream suits Cockatiels, Conures, Quakers, Caiques, Indian Ringnecks & most Lorikeets. Birds that like to chew and destroy plastic may break the plastic lids over time. I am currently out of stock of the tougher, acrylic lid option.
For Budgies and Lovebirds, there is a small toy available and for Alexandrines to Macaws, the Large Pipe Dream is available and comes only with acrylic lids (when available).
